Ukraine opposition sets 24-hour deadline
Opposition leaders in Ukraine are asking protesters to refrain from clashing with police for the next 24 hours, after at least two demonstrators were shot and killed in confrontations with police.

 

Emerging after three hours of talks with President Viktor Yaanukovych on Wednesday evening, opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk said he gave the president until the following evening either to move to ease the political crisis or face popular rage. (AP)
